Ingredients
Method

Step 1:

Heat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5. Peel 16 floury potatoes and cut in half; if very large, cut into quarters, or leave whole if they are small. Add to a large saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil for two minutes.

 

 

 

Step 2:

Drain the potatoes well, then return to the pan and cover with a lid. Add two tablespoons of flour and shake the pan to fluff up the surfaces.

 

 

 

Step 3:

Heat a roasting tray with 140g of goose fat  and three tablespoons of vegetable oil, or just 150ml of olive oil, over a medium-high heat. When sizzling, carefully add the potatoes and cook, turning to brown on all sides, for five minutes. 

 

 

Step 4:

Roast in the oven for one hour, turning every 20 minutes until crisp on the outside and floury on the inside.
